Music

Our music program takes an original approach to the re-examination of Christianity as expressed in musical art. We do this through performances, teaching at rehearsals and the composition of original works, large and small. Each musician and congregation member has the opportunity to be enriched spiritually and creatively by experiencing music anchored in faith and history. About 200 volunteer musical artists make this important contribution.

Sacraments

COMMUNION

Communion, or “The Lord’s Supper,” is a celebration of the community of Jesus Christ. We share this sacrament with the wider Christian Church, believing that all are called to share the bread and cup in Christ’s name together.

Montview celebrates communion on the first Sunday of each month at both services of worship. The Presbyterian Church does not include a specific rite for a child’s first communion. Parents decide when their children are ready to participate. Children learn about communion in Sunday School and many shadow our elders and deacons to serve communion, which helps broaden their understanding of this sacrament in our faith community.

WEDDINGS

The wedding ceremony is a public affirmation of the trust and love you have with your partner. The decision to marry is a sign that two people have been drawn together in the closest of relationships, where dependence upon the grace of God, gratitude for one another and commitment to each other are fundamental.

The marriage ceremony itself is a religious
service of worship and dedication. It is a time of thanksgiving for the gift of God’s love for us and your love for each other. Surround yourselves with those you love and who love you, and you will create a reverent, shared moment that you will remember for the rest of your lives.

BAPTISM

Baptism is the church’s way of welcoming a child into the love of God and the nurture of the congregation. We speak about God’s love, which is present in each new life. We receive parents’ commitment to giving their child the love of a community of faith, and we promise to be “the village” for each person who is baptized.

We also baptize adults who would like to become members of the church but who have never been baptized. If you are interested in scheduling a baptism or learning more about baptism, call us at 303-355-1651 or email pastors Ian at cummins@montview.org or Clover at clover@montview.org.

MEMORIALS

A memorial service fulfills several important needs. It
is an opportunity to honor, celebrate and give thanks to God for a person’s life, as well as to say goodbye.

Montview’s pastors and a community of friends and family can provide much needed support, comfort,
and hope during this difficult time. In addition to the service itself, the Montview Columbarium is available for the interment of ashes and space is available for receptions following the service.

To inquire about memorial services, call the office at 303-355-1651.
